How to make Palak Paneer Paratha:

  2. Now take a bowl. Add wheat flour, spinach paste and salt. Start kneading with your hand and make a soft smooth dough. You can add a little water if it’s too dry or a little flour if it’s too sticky. Keep aside for 15 mins
  3. Take paneer in a bowl. Add coriander powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, cumin powder and salt. Mix well. Keep aside the stuffing
  4. Divide the dough into 4-5 equal size balls. Dust it with wheat flour and roll it with a rolling-pin to make a small round
  5. Place around 1-1.5 tbsp of the stuffing in the centre. Bring the edges together and make a round stuffed ball
  6. Dust the ball and start rolling slowly to make a normal size phulka. Dust again in between rolling if required. Make sure it doesn’t break
  7. Meanwhile heat a tawa. Place the paratha on it. Fry from both the sides with ghee or oil. Cook till you get the brown spots
  8. Your Palak Paneer Paratha is ready. Serve hot with butter, curd or tea.
